Question of the day.

How old were you when you learned to read? Did you learn by sight memorisation, or sounding out letters?

My answer:

I wrote a post answering a similar question before, so I won’t write a lot in detail here. If I remember correctly, I was about 7-8 when I learned to read and it was through memorisation.

How was it with you? 🙂

  1. My parents started teaching me with Highlights magazine when I was three!! They did all the sounding-out exercises with me, and they read to me all the time!! Also, I learned about vowels in preschool (I actually remember that!).

  2. I was possibly about four. I taught myself primarily, through trying to ‘read’ the comics in the newspaper, so perhaps it was sight learning (visual) leading to associating the words with the pictures, and then building on the concept. My mother was big on reading to us too and teaching us words very early on.

  3. I really can’t remember how old I was. I am guessing 4-5. My mom, although very educated and spoke very good English, was not a native English speaker. I am not sure, nor do I recall, her teaching me to read.
